Connecting Two Kflops Together

Hi there,

I searched the forums but did not see if anyone already asked this.

My application will require more than 8 axis. Can you cluster two Kflop boards together so that you can control up to 16 axis?

If yes, is there any documentation on this topic?

Thank you kindly,
Cyprian

Interfacing Kflop with Blender

Good day, I am wondering if anyone has attempted to interface the kflop motion controller with Blender which is a free and open source 3D creation suite, https://www.blender.org/. Below is an example of how someone managed to interface Blender and an Arduino to control a robotic arm in real-time by ...

Using 4700 series logic ICs

Hello, I'm trying to use some 4700 series logic with one of the 3.3v only inputs on the Kflop. I'm looking for ICs in DIP packages in particular. Looking at Digikey, there are 74HC, 74HCP, 74AC, 74ACT and 74AHC families that are still available in DIP. I don't really know which ones would work, let ...

Re: Travel Distance Calibration

Hummm after testing some more I have discovered that I do not get repeatable results moving still in only one direction. For instance when I move in 1" increments over a total distance of 5" I get a different result that if I move the entire 5" in one continuous movement. I have also discovered that...

Re: Travel Distance Calibration

Hi Tom, I travel over 6 inches. Here are the measurements at every inch: 1.000" kmotion CNC = 1.002" on machine 2.000" kmotion CNC = 2.004" on machine 3.000" kmotion CNC = 3.006" on machine 4.000" kmotion CNC = 4.008" on machine 5.000" kmotion CNC = 5.010" on machine 6.000" kmotion CNC = 6.012" on m...

Travel Distance Calibration

Hi there, Is there a way to calibrate an axis in Kmotion CNC similar to how it's done in Mach3? In Mach3 you can select the axis and tell it how far you want it to travel. You then measure how far it traveled on your physical machine and enter in that value. Mach3 then decides how many counts/inch i...
